Everybody wants a brighter, whiter smile. Dazzling teeth can work wonders for boosting your confidence and taking away the years, but they are also a sign that you take good care of your teeth and enjoy a healthy, balanced diet.
Keeping your teeth pearly white is a challenging task, particularly with all the stains and discolourations created from regular eating and drinking. For this reason many people turn to professional teeth whitening – or bleaching, to help them ward off stains.
Enamel is the outermost layer of the tooth and is a semi-translucent layer that serves to protect your teeth against tooth decay. And although enamel is a very strong substance, the daily harm caused from lack of care can easily damage it, making discoloration show through more easily.
Teeth whitening has become an incredibly popular procedure in recent years and an awareness of taking care of one’s teeth is rising significantly, particularly in such a media-heavy age where so much emphasis is placed on appearance. Bleaching is a great way to improve your confidence and is completely non-surgical and non-invasive.
The process of whitening the teeth usually involves placing a peroxide-based bleaching gel onto the enamel. This opens the pores of the enamel, allowing the gel to reach the deeper layer of dentin beneath. This solution will then begin to lighten the dentin, resulting in the appearance of whiter teeth.
The teeth whitening procedure at our dental clinic in Limassol is quick, straightforward and completely pain free. Once complete you will step out of our surgery with a brighter, whiter and healthier looking smile.
